Gears of War 4 proves Marcus Fenix actually had sex

You might think late-game John Travolta lookalike and longtime Gears of War star Marcus Fenix never made it to pound town on account of being a ghastly, thick-necked meathead, but Fenix did indeed get his dick wet, free of protection, proba...

 
Gears of War PC
We already covered Gears of War: Ultimate Edition at length in Brett's wonderful review, but surprise -- it's coming out on PC too this month! Well, sort of.

It's the last day to guarantee yourself access to the Gears of War 4 beta

The tacked-on final day of February is proving to be a stressful one. It's a day of last chances, like in the event of the discounted Fallout 4 season pass. There's a similar urgency with regard to one of Xbox's biggest properties. Tod...

The Gears of War remaster might be on PC very soon

Like most publishers, Microsoft took the advent of new consoles as an opportunity to gussy up some old titles and resell them. None of them may have been more high-profile than last summer's Gears of War Ultimate Edition. It was said to be ...

We might get Gears of War 4 a little sooner than anticipated

There's a good chance that we'll be fragging Locusts and rolling into chest-high walls a bit earlier this year than we thought. Microsoft has stealthily moved the launch window for Gears of War 4 up by a month or two. As reported by Ga...

Gears of War is twice as efficient this weekend

Gears of War 4 dev canceling its original game for Gears a 'no-brainer'
